Selling a Classic 1960’s Austin-Healey
Hot off the success of the 1950’s classic Austin-Healey models like the 100-4 and 100-6, the Austin-Healey Company would begin the 1960’s with the launch of the Austin-Healey 3000. In fact, the Austin-Healey 3000 would be the company’s bread and butter throughout the 1960’s. This would also be an important era is the company’s racing history, as the 3000 would be widely successful, winning its class in many European rallies throughout the decade. In fact, the Austin-Healey 3000 is still used in competition today by British sports car enthusiasts. There would be three distinct variations to the 3000. The original would be produced from 1959 to 1961, the Mark II from 1961 to 1963, and the Mark III from 1963 to 1967.
